New Defender's Study Bible Notes
47:12 new fruit according to his months. This mighty river, growing in size as it flows (probably supplied by many springs or other tributaries along its route, also supplies the nourishment for an amazing stand of trees along its banks. These bear fruit all year long and even their leaves are valuable sources of medicinal substances. Both the river and the trees foreshadow the “pure river of water of life” and the “tree of life” that will flow and grow eternally on the new earth (Revelation 22:1,2). These great changes in topography, geology, hydrology, and agriculture for life in the millennium may well involve both creative and providential miracles (note Appendix 9).
